January 3, 2018 Subject:
I am a researcher who is about to publish an article on Phillis Wheatley. I would like to include the frontispiece of her book in my paper (the one you uploaded on archive.org). Could you please tell me how I can obtain the copyright permission and a high resolution image of Wheatley's frontispiece?
Thank you very much!
